So recently my sweet husband surprised me by taking me to my favorite place ever for my birthday - Asheville, North Carolina! Asheville is fun for several reasons but special because it's where we got married :). I also have great family there so it makes it even more fun. The timing of this visit was great because my could-be-my-sister cousin. Lara, got engaged 3 days before we got there. We went dress shopping and checked out churches and reception venues all while I was there. I was impressed at how much we got done.
Won't this be the perfect little white chapel for a gorgeous May wedding?
The Palmer Chapel is a hidden treasure in Cataloochee Valley built in 1898. It's still in amazing shape and traces of the past are found all around.
Here's a photo of the beautiful bride ...
and I couldn't resist taking one of her maid-of-honor, my other stunning cousin, Abby Rose...
These girls spoil me so bad because they are crazy photogenic.
And I have to thank Elio, my husband, because he went overboard and gave me a new Nikon D800 for my birthday present. This is a camera that I NEVER thought I would own. I'm beyond grateful and totally excited that it takes such stellar pics.
